If you are planning to start a website you need a web server to host your files i.e. images, audios, videos which will show up on your website. There are many ways to host your website for example shared hosting, cloud hosting and VPS hosting but all these share resources and they mostly run multiple websites, in some cases they host thousands of websites as a result resources gets divided and your website do not run properly. If you are hosting your website on any of the shared server and one of the websites hosted on your server get a huge spike of traffic, your website will start loading slow or it might stop loading at all. When you get a dedicated server you get more control in your hand, that’s why it’s always a best idea to get a dedicated server if you are planning to run a serious website. Different providers offer different kind of dedicated servers with different specs and price. When selecting a dedicated server you will always want to get something with high specs i.e. More Hard Disk, Big RAM, Better CPU Speed, Good Cache, More Cores and High Bandwidth and off course good support from the data center. There are many dedicated server providers in Pakistan and we have chosen some of them with their initial plans and tried to compare them.
